The exact same thing happened to mine several days ago. I opened mine up, noted that two of the capacitors on the power supply are a bit puffed up, and tested the power supply's 12V and 5V outputs. The 12 Volt output is fine, but the 5 Volt output is only putting out 2 Volts. In short, all of the capacitors on the power supply are made by the same company (Jenpo) and apparently these capacitors were made using the stolen but incomplete formula for manufacturing capacitors much more cheaply. That "capacitor scandal" has cost electronics manufacturers millions. In any event, this would explain why Walmart blew out these Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 players for such a cheap price. Obviously all of the capacitors on the power supply will eventually fail. I have already experienced similar capacitor related problems with a few computer motherboards and other electronics equipment which I bought in the early to mid 2000's. I am contacting Cyberhome to see if they will send me a replacement power supply to go in my CH-DVD 300.

    Okay, finally I have a solution for the no power problem. I had to replace two capacitors on the power supply. Both capacitors are located fairly close on the power supply to the 5V and 12V output plug which goes to the DVD player. In my unit, both capacitors appeared to be slightly puffed up on the top of them. The caps are the 2200uF and 1000uF capacitors, both rated at 10V. My theory is that the 100uF cap goes bad first, and that cap in turn takes out the 2200uF cap the next time you plug in your DVD player. Note that the internal fuse on the power supply never blew since the caps merely went bad and of course did not short out. Yet with the bad caps, the 5V output will only read around 2V.

    I ordered these specific replacement capacitors from Digi-Key electronics:

    2200uF 10V, part # 493-1271-ND
    1000uF 10V, part # 493-1496-ND

    A half hour ago I finished installing these replacement caps. I then reinstalled the power supply board but didn't plug in the cable leading to the DVD player so that I could check the voltage outputs with my multimeter. I now have 12V and 5V on the appropriate plug pins. Yea! It appeared to be fixed. So I unplugged the power cord, reattached the cable for the DVD electronics, put the cover back on, plugged it in again, and of course my Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 DVD player is working again.

    I ordered a pair of each capacitor since my dad has the same model DVD player. I figure that its just a matter of time before I have to repair his as well. Anyway, the total cost for the caps plus shipping via first class mail was only around $6. Now that was a dirt cheap repair job!

    I forgot to mention...

    While you have the case opened up so that you can remove the power supply board and replace the bad capacitors, you might as well remove the metal top plate over the CD tray so that you can clean the laser lenses with cotton ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol. That way you won't get disc read errors due to the lenses being slightly dirty.

Hi folks,
If you have any ability with a soldering iron, you could replace the caps yourself and get the player up and running a lot faster than Cyberhome will ever help you.
I did it just today on my dead one using caps I bought from Allied Electronics. The obvious culprit was the 2200uF 10V cap, but I replaced them all anyway. Total cost was about $3. The caps were part of an order I placed for parts on another project I am working on. I figured, what the heck, for a couple more bucks I'll get these caps and try replacing them myself before I throw the thing away. It worked!
As for getting a replacement PS from Cyberhome, what if it has the same garbage jenpo caps on it?

The red "off" power off indicater on my Cyber Home 300 was lighted & I turned the power with the remote, however, the red indicator went off but the green "power on" indicator did not come on. All attempts to get either the red or green indicator failed. I opened the box and found that the DC to DC converter that supplies power to the DVD drive unit was 12V & 2.5V. I figured that the voltages should be 12V & 5 VDC. Bridged another 2200uf capacitor across the existing 2200uf capacitor for the "5 VDC" supply and the voltage increased to 4.0VDC. I assume that the original 2200uf 5V supply capacitor has leakage so I plan to remove the "bad" capacitor which I expect will fix the problem. I wonder if Cyber Home will provide a replacement board??

OfficeJet 7410 wont boot up.


I would try resetting the power supply.
You can do this by unplugging the power adapter cable from the wall outlet.
Unplug the other end from the printer.
Unplug the power cable portion from the rectangular power adapter.
You should be left with a power cord, a power adapter, and a printer; All three are not plugged into anything. Leave it this way for 30 secs, then retry the turn-on process after plugging the cords back into where they belong. Also, try plugging straight into a wall outlet, and not into a surge protector.

If this is not working still, double check the outlet in question by testing it with an appliance like a hair dryer or lamp.

Good luck!

Can't turn wii back on


Did you unplug it from the Wii, or from the Wall Outlet? You need to unplug it from the wall outlet, not the Wii. If you haven't unplugged it from the wall outlet and left it unplugged for 5 to 10 minutes, then unplug it from the wall outlet and leave unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes.

This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector. If there was a power surge, or the power went out, etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter, not the Wii itself, so power to the AC adapter needs to be cut off.

There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10 minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 5 or 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

Hp 1315 all in one


The all-in-one product does not turn on If the all-in-one product does not turn on at all, try the following actions in order to determine the cause:
  1. Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power supply from the back of the printer.
  3. Remove the product cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
  4. Wait at least 20 seconds, then, plug in the supply back into the wall outlet.
  5. Plug in the power supply back into the printer.
  6. Press the power button to turn the printer on.
  7. For models that have an external power supply module, verify that the power supply module is plugged in correctly. Some power supply modules have a green LED built into the connector end or on the power supply module. This LED will be lit if power is present. If the LED is not lit, replace the power supply module.
  8. Plug the power cord into a different electrical outlet. If the all-in-one product has an ADF with an external cable plugged into the back of the product, use the following procedure:
    1. Turn off the unit.
    2. Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet.
    3. Unplug the ADF cable from the back of the product.
    4. Plug the ADF cable to the back of the product.
    5. Plug in the power cable to the wall outlet, and turn on the power.
      1. If no change, the problem is not the ADF.
      2. If the problem clears, turn off the all-in-one, unplug the power cable, and reconnect the ADF.
      3. If the error returns, the ADF is defective. Contact HP Customer Care to get the ADF replaced.
  9. Disconnect the computer parallel cable from the back of the all-in-one product and try to turn on the product again. The computer might be grounding out through the parallel port. If this corrects the issue, check the grounding of the computer and outlet.
